Retaining Walls & Seat Walls
Rick has stood behind the one year warranties he gives on all our new plantings and, most importantly, he is honest and hard-working. Recently, we needed a red Japanese maple to replace one that was a casualty from this past winter’s heavy snowfall. He and his assistant selected an absolutely exquisite tree to replace our “lost” one and when we questioned him regarding possible replacement of another Japanese maple in our yard that did not look healthy to our untutored eye, he suggested that we wait and see because he thought the tree had possibilities. He said “I’m not looking to spend your money if I do not have to.” Much to our surprise and delight the tree has leafed out beautifully! Many of our neighbors and friends have used Rick and Tall Oaks to do their landscaping and been as satisfied as we are. His work speaks for itself.
Rick takes the time to listen to what we want, offers different options, and uses his years of experience to guide us in the decision-making process. His talents go beyond his extensive knowledge of plants and trees; he designed and built a stone-walled garden and rock pond with cascading water in our backyard, creating a peaceful place that attracts a variety of birds. Rick delivers on time and as promised at a fair price. He uses quality plants, shrubs, trees, and materials, and he guarantees his work. It is an understatement to say that he takes pride in his work!
We greatly appreciate both his service and his loyalty and recommend his landscaping service without reservation.
Rick’s best characteristic, besides his excellent workmanship, is his reliability. How many of us have been told at one time or another of an arrival time and that arrival time is never promised? That will never happen with Rick; he is prompt and, if some unforeseen event happens, he will call immediately.
One fine note: This spring Rick was doing some landscaping and mulching and discovered a broken sprinkler head and also a broken pipe. He replaced the sprinkler head, drove to the nearest hardware store to buy pipe and returned to repair it – all out of the goodness of his heart.
Would I recommend Rick to others? Without hesitation – ABSOLUTELY!!!
